Wayne Renardson has not received any gifts yet
Six String Jazz & Friends have been invited to play jazz at Green Hills Piano during its opening the first week of November. GHP is not another piano store selling new instruments, but is offering people the opportunity to obtain a restored instrument, much like the difference between a new Gibson guitar and a restored J-45. As owner Grant Houston explained, " It's recycling true American craftsmanship. These pianos are built and rebuilt in America by Americans. Predominantly from the production era at the end of WW I to the beginning of WWII, a time regarded as the 'golden age' of the American piano."
GHP will not carry new pianos. The fine old instruments they offer have been made new therefore the prices reflect the cost of a new piano.
You can have a fine older restored instrument for the cost of a new one.
Jazz from the 1920s through the 1950s will be played Friday November 6th and Saturday the 7th beginning around six. The core group consists of Ned Ramage, guitar, Daniel Gaynor, guitar, Dan Wulfers, drums, Hugh Bramhall, congas, and Wayne Renardson, acoustic bass. Others have been invited to stop by to sit in and play their favorite jazz standards. If you are interested in playing, contact Wayne at
